Holds Moratorium – Spring 2021

Dear Colleagues,

This message is a reminder of the student holds moratorium enacted this semester, which will be in place again beginning on Monday, March 15, 2021 and continues through Wednesday, April 7, 2021. This moratorium is being imposed to ensure our students have ample time to address their holds in the days leading up to the start of the term, as well as the days leading into and throughout the fall 2021 course registration period, which begins on March 22, 2021.

In most cases*, no new holds impacting student registration may be added from March 15, 2021 through April 7, 2021.

*Exceptions: Advising and billing holds for late and/or newly admitted students and limited, individualized holds (e.g., Care Team, Community Standards) designed to ensure care of the community and individual students.

We encourage all offices, departments, and schools/colleges to carefully consider the timing of their holds and how they communicate the process that students should follow to get holds removed. Please note that the Registrar will be communicating more broadly with students at key points in the upcoming weeks regarding what holds are present on their record, and how to remove them.

Should you have any questions about this moratorium, we encourage you to contact the Office of the Registrar at:

Vice President for Enrollment Planning & Management
